Tourists flock to Northwoods and its resorts to observe bright fall leaves
MINOCQUA - Those who live in the Northwoods know the special beauty of nature this time of year. Others need to travel to enjoy the spectacular colors of fall leaves.

Leaves around the Northwoods are currently at 85 percent of their peak colors, causing towns like Minocqua to see an increase in tourism as the leaves change in the fall.

"We've got tons of different people from all over coming up here to see the different fall colors. It is that short period of time to catch them when they're [leaves] in their most vibrant piece and place of time," said The Waters of Minocqua marketing director Lauren Faller about the influx of people.

Tourists are almost competing to get in hotels and resorts around the Northwoods, simply to see the leaves change color.

"We're actually at a hundred percent occupancy, which is crazy for a Tuesday night. But people are really looking to get up here just for something small to do, just go out to take a quick drive or do some other site seeing and stuff around the area up here," said Faller

The fall color show doesn't last long. Leaves are expected to fall off their branches by the end of the month.
